Navigating Expectations: A Comparative Analysis Of Writing Standards, Denise Pichardo 2012 Nova Southeastern University

Navigating Expectations: A Comparative Analysis Of Writing Standards, Denise Pichardo

Department of Writing and Communication Theses

Writing, for some, is seen as a predominantly subjective subject. Many standards of how writing is evaluated exist among institutions and professionals, and along with this, there are complications with fulfilling these standards because of the variety of opinions in what makes someone ready for college-level work. Because of this, it is hard for high schools, universities, and other organizations to agree on and determine one set of standards. This chapter will discuss the issue of college readiness and will introduce and discuss the need for an understanding of how college-level writing is defined among four different organizations. Then I ...

How Porous Are The Walls That Separate Us?: Transformative Service-Learning, Women’S Incarceration, And The Unsettled Self, Coralynn V. Davis 2012 Bucknell University

How Porous Are The Walls That Separate Us?: Transformative Service-Learning, Women’S Incarceration, And The Unsettled Self, Coralynn V. Davis

Faculty Journal Articles

In this article, we refine a politics of thinking from the margins by exploring a pedagogical model that advances transformative notions of service learning as social justice teaching. Drawing on a recent course we taught involving both incarcerated women and traditional college students, we contend that when communication among differentiated and stratified parties occurs, one possible result is not just a view of the other but also a transformation of the self and other. More specifically, we suggest that an engaged feminist praxis of teaching incarcerated women together with college students helps illuminate the porous nature of fixed markers that ...


Filial Relationship, Mercy And Limitation In Thérèse Of Lisieux: Towards A Thérèsian Theological Anthropology And Its Implications, Judith Schneider 2012 University of Notre Dame Australia

Filial Relationship, Mercy And Limitation In Thérèse Of Lisieux: Towards A Thérèsian Theological Anthropology And Its Implications, Judith Schneider

Theses

Against the nineteenth century neo-scholastic description of grace as an unfelt state, Thérèse of Lisieux, in an emphasis on affect, offers an understanding of grace as a felt experience. In Story of a Soul, her effort (initially from a Jansenist motive) to demonstrate grace as present in her life, in its transparency reveals a self in formation, and a related developing God-perception. Noting the centrality of affect in human development through L. Alan Sroufe’s model of affective development, and applying D. W.Winnicott’s True Self/False Self paradigm to Thérèse’s thought, the research explores Thérèse’s ...


An Investigation Into The Neural Substrates Of Virtue To Determine The Key Place Of Virtues In Human Moral Development, Andrew P.L Mullins 2012 University of Notre Dame Australia

An Investigation Into The Neural Substrates Of Virtue To Determine The Key Place Of Virtues In Human Moral Development, Andrew P.L Mullins

Theses

Virtues, as described by Aristotle and Aquinas, are understood as dispositions of character to behave in habitual, specific, positive ways; virtue is a critical requirement for human flourishing. From the perspective of Aristotelian-Thomistic anthropology which offers an integrated vision of the material and the rational in the human person, I seek to identify the neural bases for the development and exercise of moral virtue. First I review current neuroscientific knowledge of the capacity of the brain to structure according to experience, to facilitate behaviours, to regulate emotional responses and support goal election. Then, having identified characteristics of moral virtue in ...


Role-Based E-Learning For University Students : A Comparison Of Australian, American, British And Singapore Designs, Sandra Wills 2012 University of Wollongong

Role-Based E-Learning For University Students : A Comparison Of Australian, American, British And Singapore Designs, Sandra Wills

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

Role play in face-to-face contexts has been shown to be a powerful teaching design at all levels of education. The arrival of e-learning makes it possible to engage with different types of role play, for example inter-national and inter-institutional collaborations, role plays blending online and face-to-face interaction, role plays blending synchronous and asynchronous media including recordings of the sessions, and role play within distance learning contexts. It is now possible to conduct elaborate and responsive role play activities where the identity of the participants is not immediately apparent, where they may use avatars or inhabit 3D virtual worlds as part ...


Metropolis: Rotwang's Robot, Revolution And Redemption, Michael K. Organ 2012 University of Wollongong

Metropolis: Rotwang's Robot, Revolution And Redemption, Michael K. Organ

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

The objects in the exhibition Metropolis: Rotwang's Robot, Revolution and Redemption started out as marketing material for the landmark 1927 film Metropolis, by German director Fritz Lang. In the intervening years they have evolved from commercial products into memorabilia and collectables - the works in this exhibition all come from the private collection of former Greens MP Michael Organ.


The Perceptions Of General Education Teachers About The Over-Representation Of Black Students In Special Education, David Roland Grice 2012 Andrews University

The Perceptions Of General Education Teachers About The Over-Representation Of Black Students In Special Education, David Roland Grice

Dissertations

Statement of the Problem: There is an over-representation of Black students in special education. Black students are typically referred for special education consideration by the end of the fourth grade. One effort to reduce the large number of referrals in Connecticut was Courageous Conversations About Race. Courageous Conversations About Race is designed to address what educators, families, and other community groups can do to improve teaching and learning across racial lines. It served as a strategy for educators to confront and deinstitutionalize racism. Courageous Conversations About Race is an effective means to address the issues of race in schools/districts ...


Ferdinand Hochstetter In Australia, 1858-1859, Michael K. Organ 2012 University of Wollongong

Ferdinand Hochstetter In Australia, 1858-1859, Michael K. Organ

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

The visit to Australia in 1858 of the Austrian Imperial Frigate Novara was part of a flag-waving exercise by the Austrian Habsburg monarchy, though it acquired added significance due to the inclusion on board of a scientific contingent comprising Ferdinand Hochstetter (geologist); Georg Frauenfeld and Johann Zelebor (zoologists); Eduard Schwarz and Anton Jelinek (botanists); Karl Scherzer (historiographer, ethnographer and economist); and Joseph Selleny (artist). Members of the crew, including Commodore Bernhard von WullerstorfUrbair and Lt. Robert Muller, were also expert in the fields of meteorology, hydrography, oceanography, geophysics and linguistics. The records of these scientists and their various collections would ...

Social Network Analysis For Technology-Enhanced Learning: Review And Future Directions, Rory L. Sie, Thomas D. Ullmann, Kamakshi Rajagopal, Karina Cela, Marlies Bitter-Rijpkema, Peter Sloep 2012 Open University of the Netherlands

Social Network Analysis For Technology-Enhanced Learning: Review And Future Directions, Rory L. Sie, Thomas D. Ullmann, Kamakshi Rajagopal, Karina Cela, Marlies Bitter-Rijpkema, Peter Sloep

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

By nature, learning is social. The interactions by which we learn from others inherently form a network of relationships among people, but also between people and resources. This paper gives an overview of the potential social network analysis (SNA) may have for social learning. It starts with an overview of the history of social learning and how SNA may be of value. The core of the paper outlines the state-of-art of SNA for technology-enhanced learning (TEL), by means of four possible types of SNA applications: visualisation, analysis, simulation, and interventions. In an outlook, future directions of SNA research for TEL ...

‘My Tomb Will Be Opened In Eight Hundred Years’: Another View Of The Afterlife In The Six Dynasties China, Jie Shi 2012 Bryn Mawr College

‘My Tomb Will Be Opened In Eight Hundred Years’: Another View Of The Afterlife In The Six Dynasties China, Jie Shi

History of Art Faculty Research and Scholarship

Jie Shi analyzes the sixth-century epitaph of Prince Shedi Huiluo as both a funerary text and a burial object in order to show that the means of achieving posthumous immortality radically changed during the Six Dynasties. Whereas the Han-dynasty vision of an immortal afterlife counted mainly on the imperishability of the tomb itself, Shedi’s epitaph predicted that the tomb housing it would eventually be ruined. This new, pessimistic vision of tombs was shaped by the experience people had in the Six Dynasties of encountering numerous ruined tombs in their daily life. To secure an afterlife for the deceased, they ...

Canyon, Jassim Al Nashmi 2012 Iowa State University

Canyon, Jassim Al Nashmi

Datum: student journal of architecture

This piece was inspired completely by the unique slab of solid hardwood; a black walnut board that had a taper on its long side, there was also a split down the middle, a crack that was reminiscent of a canyon.


Columbus Museum For Innovative Objects Of Design, Elissa Bruggeman 2012 Iowa State University

Columbus Museum For Innovative Objects Of Design, Elissa Bruggeman

Datum: student journal of architecture

Often times museums are much too quick to reveal their contents, resulting in spoon-feeding patrons the art on a metaphoric silver platter. Objects worth such protection and consideration of display should be contained within a structure that places the same constraints upon itself.
